According to Indonesian law, officials can detain suspects for 24 hours before being charged or released.
A statement by police chief Puta Ika Prabawa said the alleged perpetrator was under the influence of alcohol.
& # 39; Based on the report, the police went to the crime scene and asked witnesses and the victim. A bule (foreigner) who was reportedly the perpetrator was arrested.
& # 39; The perpetrator was taken to Kuta police station for further investigation.
& # 39; The alleged perpetrator could not be interrogated yet because he is still under the influence of alcohol. & # 39;
Witnesses told the police that the alleged victim was driving a motorcycle taxi past the nightclub when they hit a guard in the face.
The attacker then jumped off the engine and tried to approach the victim, but was stopped by the driver, police said.
Lawyer Muhammad Rifan, who previously represented several Australians accused of misconduct in Bali, was seen at the police station on Saturday.
Fifita, worth a season of up to $ 1 million, has around 10 NRL clubs fighting to sign him up.
The Broncos confirmed to 9news that Fifita was in prison and said it had flown an official to meet their key ahead.
& # 39; The Brisbane Broncos have been informed today that David Fifita has been detained by the Bali authorities following an alleged incident with a security guard, & quot; a Broncos statement.
& # 39; The club works with representatives in Bali to provide David with all the support he needs, and a Broncos officer travels to Indonesia today. & # 39;
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Brisbane Broncos and Austrindo for comments.

Last month, Melbourne Storm player Nelson Asofa-Solomona was caught in a fight outside the same club.
CCTV of the violent fight arose and had Asofa-Solomona hit repeatedly.
Reportedly, however, witnesses claim that Asofa-Solomona took revenge only when Storm winger Suliasi Vunivalu was hit in the face during an unprovoked attack at the club.
Later, another visual material emerged from the club that the moment when Vunivalu was allegedly beaten in the face left him with a cut under his eye.
Both groups were forced to leave the location shortly after the punch-up, when the alleged violence broke out.
Due to an influx of fights outside the club, the head of the Tourism Office of Badung I Made Badra warned that tourists who were caught breaking Indonesian law would be deported.
& # 39; If they violate the provisions of the law. If you have to be deported for violating the Indonesian legal license. Whether you like it or not, we have to do law enforcement, & he said.
& # 39; We hope that tourists enjoy their holidays well and follow the rules of local wisdom and if possible travel with guides.
